I have been to a few virtual/online open space sessions now. They exceeded
my expectations - but/and my expectations were very low.

Overall, I enjoyed the experience and did get value, but, it is a definite
second to face-to-face communication. The serendipity was missing - which
is where the real magic lies.

Looking forward to being done with the pandemic and meeting people in
person again. I think there will always be a place for virtual open space
still now it has been proven out and may still be a viable option in
certain instances.
